The inaugural Seattle Street Food Festival, slated for August 10 in Cal Anderson Park, has an official lineup, and more details about how exactly things will go down at this massive congregation of trucks, carts, booths, and other up-and-coming food outfits—plus plenty of well-known chefs and restaurants.
Organizer Ryan Reiter, also the guy behind the Mobile Food Rodeo food truck gatherings, says the idea is to embrace all kinds of street food, from little booths like Beanfish, which makes taiyaki at the Fremont market, to heavy hitters like the snappily outfitted Barking Frog Mobile Kitchen. Reiter is still adding vendors, and says that brick-and-mortar joints like Li'l Woody's, Stumbling Goat, Po Dog, Thai Curry Simple, and Marination will also have booths or be involved in some way. Keep an eye on the website as this evolves.
The massive lineup listed below will be on hand from 5 to 11pm, creating a night market ambience as the sun goes down. Admission is free (duh, you pay for the food you buy), though starting June 30 you can get a priority line ticket for $35, or $65 premiere pass that lets you skip lines all day long.
